Award-winning designer Claude Thibaudeau, where originality and designs are synonymous to a fine jewelry collection.
Claude Thibaudeau is truly dedicated in creating the finest quality craftsmanship with the goal to exceed your expectations. All collections are entirely designed and crafted in North America, and their latest designs are part of the most ingenious and challenging ideas ever achieved.
The results are amazing because of the creativity involved in setting the very small diamonds under a microscope. This ancient European technique has been entirely redefined by Claude and called European Micro-Pavé. The time invested on each stone to perfectly calibrate them individually in order to match precisely their millimeter size and diameter is simply unbelievable.
The outstanding work that follows depends very much on the perfect calibration step, which is why Claude is investing so much time for his preparation. He then goes under the microscope to accurately set each stone individually and assembles them side by side (girdle to girdle), which translates into more diamond sparkle and less metal between the stones so the ring reflects the fire from the diamonds instead of the metal engraving.
A well executed Euro micro-pavé pattern resembles the smoothness of velvet. This unique technique is only available with the skills and talent of Claude and his team!
This type of setting technique with so much precision is the same technique that the finest European watch companies apply to their high end products, and Claude has combined and applied this setting technique to his designs.
